21st annual Medieval Faire

Over the weekend we attended the 21st annual Medieval Faire. The weather was a bit cloudy and Jacqueline was getting over a cough but we still enjoyed ourselves.

Fire eating

She showed us how they made medicine out of herbs and fruit.
Looking at bows and arrows.

Equestrian games

This guy was cool. He asked the girls if they wanted their fortunes told and pulled out a pendant for each of them to wear. He told Jacqueline that she will leave the world a better place than she found it and told Shawna she is a protector to those to small or weak to defend themselves. :-)

Dragon ride

Playing with sharp things

Making baskets

The Privie...when ya gotta go, you gotta go.

Hanging with the locals

The Roman army getting ready for the living chess game.

Chess can be so violent. ;-)

We're definitely going back next year. The girls want to dress up next time so we have a whole year to look for outfits. :-)

LOL! That's funny about seeing the same guy. My girls were into checking out everyone's outfits-I think it was one of the best parts for them. :-)
